Default move webmail to other ispconfig server

Hi everyone,

I am using ispconfig on a server for some time now.
As I have bought a new server I need to move all the websites and the mail.

One of my clients uses the webclient UebiMiau and also needs to be moved.
On the old server I can see his mail's in the ../user/username/maildir folder.
I have created a website on the new server just like I did on the old server for this client.
But there is no ~maildir folder.
So I am unable to copy his data.

Is there some place I should look else?
The old server is upgraded to the latest version of ispconfig.
And the new server also has of course the latest version.

I also need to move his address book.
Where can I find this and where should I copy this to?

Any help would verry much be apreaciated.
Thanks in advance.

Rgds Edo

Did you move your installation as shown here? http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/sho...ving+ispconfig

Did you copy all web sites and mail folders from the old to the new server?

Default moving mail

Thanks for youre reply.

Well I did almost moved like in this thread:
http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/sho...ving+ispconfig

As I do not have more than 10 websites running I used the backup method of ispconfig to get the data from the old server.
Setup the website and all mail users by hand on the new server and copy the /web data into the /web directory.
So I did not copy the whole /home directory!!

Only one user is using webmail and has a ~maildir directory, like the others, on the old server.
On the new server NOT ALL websites have a ~maildir directory.
And the users directory who is using webmail does not have a ~maildir dirctory where I can copy the data into.
So this is why I got confused.
Espacialy because the user has mail in his inbox on the new server, which is not in the ~maildir directory as there is none.

Reading through the other post I gues I should check out the /var/spool/mail dir.
But here can I find his guestbook?

Do you use Maildir or mbox on the new server? What's the output of
Code:
netstat -tap
?
